Mixed Nuts is a fun Hal Roach short from 1934 filled with funny jokes and beautiful chorus girls It was directed by James Parrot and stars Thelma Hill (a former Mack Sennett bathing beauty), Douglas Wakefield, Billy Nelson, and Nora Cecil.
The story begins with the government deciding it needs to do something about all the unemployed chorus girls. So they decide to spend $2 million to send the ladies to a finishing school. Unfortunately the schools owner Mrs. Twitchett is not happy about the girls being there. At the school they are taught self-defense and art but all of it is really just an excuse for a lot of funny gags. One of the highlights is watching lovely Thelma Hill dealing with ants in her dress! At the end there's a big dance number with the ladies wearing skimpy outfits (even Mrs. Twitchett gets in on the fun).
Mixed Nuts has a lot of laughs, great performances, and beautiful chorus girls.
